Portland has been announced to join the 2023 Formula E calendar, completing the schedule for the first season of the new Gen3 era.
With the New York E-Prix holding its final event earlier this year, the provisional Formula E calendar didn’t feature a race in the United States.
However, it was revealed on Wednesday that a new street circuit in Portland will host the 12th round of the championship on June 24.
“We are excited to bring the premier electric motorsport world championship to Portland for the first time in June next year,” said Formula E co-founder and chief championship officer Alberto Longo.
“There is a big, passionate fanbase for professional sports in the city, together with strong ecological credentials which makes Portland a perfect host for the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.
“The USA remains an important market for Formula E. We are delighted to maintain that critical presence and engage a new audience in the Pacific Northwest region in all-electric motorsport.”
